              No Subtitles Necessary Clip 4 How Laszlo and Vilmos inspire the younger generation of cinematographers in the documentary "No Subtitles Necessary." Directed by James Chressanthis __________________________ They left one revolution behind only to create another. Laszlo Kovacs and Vilmos Zsigmond filmed and survived the 1956 Hungarian Revolution, immigrated in poverty to America, helped each other up the ladder out of the underbelly of Hollywood all the while holding onto their dreams. After ten years of no-budget toil, Laszlo’s camera broke Hollywood’s rules with Easy Rider. Suddenly in demand, he recommended Vilmos to both Peter Fonda and Robert Altman where Zsigmond poured his “poetic realism” into "The Hired Hand" and "McCabe & Mrs. Miller." They were the go-to camera guys of the New Hollywood. Among their 140 credits, Laszlo shot "Five Easy Pieces," "Paper Moon," "Shampoo," "Frances" and "Mask." Vilmos lensed "Scarecrow," "The Sugarland Express," "Cinderella Liberty," "The Rose," "Close Encounters of the Third Kind," "Blow Out," "The Deer Hunter" and "Heaven’s Gate" all the while elevating the visual style of our movies. This film has many threads: social, political and artistic. It is a Cold War story, an American immigrant story and a glamorous, Hollywood success story where dreams do come true. This is an intimate portrait of two giants of modern image-making and their deep bond of brotherhood that transcended every imaginable boundary. Documentary | 86 MINS | laszloandvilmos.com
